2010-2011 Pinnacle Hockey Preview Gallery

By Susan Lulgjuraj | Contributing Editor

It’s been 13 years since a Pinnacle hockey brand set has been on the shelves. But in about a week’s time that is all going to change as Panini America releases 2010-11 Pinnacle Hockey.

The 24-pack box (five cards per pack) should yield four Ice Breaker Rookie Cards, four Museum Collection parallels, one artist’s proof parallel, one Tough Times insert and four autograph or memorabilia hits on average.

See a full gallery of images after the jump.

The Ice Breakers rookie subset features 50 of the hottest rookies currently in the NHL, including collector favorites Taylor Hall, Tyler Seguin and Sergei Bobrovsky.

As you look through the cards you might ask yourself ‘What are these foil cards?’

Panini is using an old Pinnacle technology of Dufex but renaming in Nufex to include contemporary changes to the cards.

    interesting to say the least…I’m betting dollars to donuts these look way better in person than they do online.

    perhaps i just miss the 90’s, but this looks like the best hockey set produced since the 90’s!!! although the THREADS cards have a distinct pannini look, none of the other cards do, which is great because all the paninni were starting to look the same. count me in for a several boxes.

    love the dufex tech…alway thought those ruled.
    yay, more sticker autos and jersey swatches dumped randomly in the card–(even in the middle of a skyline…thats a new one for panini…)
    btw…is there only ONE guy at panini that designs cards?!? everything looks the same all the time!
